Two kookaburras who were, frankly, too toey for their own good have died in Perth after their power line rumpy-pumpy saw them get electrocuted – resulting in a mass blackout.

According to a report from WA Today, a guy was happily walking his dog just after 4pm in Carine, Perth, when he spotted the kookies going at it near the power lines. Suddenly there were “two big blue flashes” and a loud bang, before the power went out in more than 1,000 homes in the area.

The kookaburras, sadly, didn’t live. But I guess they died happily?

Western Power spokesman Paul Entwhistle made what is likely to be the statement of his career.

“It seems to be a case of a couple of lovebirds who have made the wrong connection, unfortunately,” he said.

Power was restored to homes pretty quickly, after technicians ensured the sub-station the kookaburras were boning into oblivion near wasn’t damaged by the surge.

The lesson here is – no matter how horny you are, do not – I cannot stress this enough – fuck across power lines.
